Mobile, Ala., has exceeded 100 trucks on the road, which it calls a major milestone in the intermodal drayage industry.
The company, which provides port and inland drayage, reached the number less than one year after beginning operations. ASF Intermodal opened with two locations in February 2011 and began moving freight the following month.
"While it took us less than a year to grow to the point where we are operating over 100 trucks through six facilities strategically placed in key locations throughout the southeast, we have plans for further expansion," says president Michael Smith. "We expect to add even more trucks in the near future and plans are also in place to open more locations to better meet the needs of our customers. "
In addition to the overall growth in intermodal transportation, company leaders attribute the rapid growth of ASF Intermodal to the company's commitment to safety, service and excellence. Smith explains, "We completed a Department of Transportation audit at the end of 2011 and received a satisfactory rating with no violations, an accomplishment we are quite proud of."
